    11 Ep#504 Full Length Inner Child Visualization

    Dedicated to Max.





    Sometimes a podcast episode feels like a pure supernatural gift from the Holy Spirit to me, and then to you. This episode is such a gift.



    This technique has the power to heal at the heart level like nothing else I've used. Ask Little Therese for that grace.



    In Episode #495, I offered a short version of The Little Way Visualization technique. It was short because I ran out of time in the episode after qualifying the exercise with a few warnings, a grounding technique in case you encountered emotions that threatened to take over, and breathing and relaxation guidance. If you need that sort of support, please revisit that episode (linked in the previous sentence).

    Several of you asked for a fuller experience without the interruptions, so here it is, full length, uninterrupted, and fully produced.

    Skip to the 12:00 minute mark to begin.

    10 Ep#503 Pharisaism, Narcissism, and Worthlessness

    10 Ep#503 Pharisaism, Narcissism, and Worthlessness

    Before we can truly become "little," we must confront the Pharisee in ourselves. Pharisaism is religious narcissism. The Bible calls it "insolent pride." 

    The label "narcissist" is widely deployed to refer to people who appear to be too full of themselves, but the truth is, we all have selfish, narcissistic tendencies to some degree that we must wrestle with. I believe this "spirit of judgment" is the main wound of the Fall. Jesus' most dire warnings and strongest words were for the blind Pharisees.

    .

    Clinically, narcissism is a spectrum, and there are three "types" that give us useful information on how to deal with it in ourselves and others. Ultimately, Paul says we must "come out!" and unto our Heavenly Father in order to heal this father wound.

    .

    If you've never explored the "father wound," here 's a whole series o healing the father wound.

    09 Ep#502 Back to Thérèse & the Series Takeaway

    09 Ep#502 Back to Thérèse & the Series Takeaway

    The point in "healing the inner child" is illustrated and affirmed by an ancient psychological/mythological idea that the way to full maturity is to find what you lost as a child and regain it. The recovery of the child revivifies the adult by teaching the adult how to play, trust, and wonder without judgment again, but with the added maturity and knowledge of being an adult who knows how to organize and protect oneself in the world. The inner child finally gets to express him/herself from a place of safety rather than fear and danger.

    In this wrap-up episode, I offer a case study that might help put all the pieces together, and a reminder from St. Thérèse to stay "little," give Jesus your littleness and little sacrifices, and leave the rest to Him.

    08 Ep#501 How Pharisaism Blocks Healing Communion

    Listen, Pharisee, the reason you're lonely, the reason you don't feel "chosen," the reason God hasn't thrown you a party (Parable of the Prodigal), is because you're full of judgments that block communion within yourself and between you and the Father, so that you can't feel comfortable enough with Him to even ask for a party. And if he threw you one now, in the state of Pharisaism you're in, you'd just condemn yourself for wastefulness and not deserving it.

    As soon as we turn back to our inner child, as soon as we extend some sympathy, boundaries, and forgiveness - for ourselves and others - the Pharisee steps in to judge: "How dare you let yourself or them get away with that!"

    Pharisaism is the wound of the world, because while the "sinful" have obvious evidence of their need for healing love, the Pharisee has his shit together, and therefore cannot see the dark, dead judgments inside himself that prevent healing communion.

    07 Ep#500 Acknowledging the Darkness

    07 Ep#500 Acknowledging the Darkness

    All of our spiritual and emotional issues stem from an unconscious unwillingness to acknowledge the darkness in ourselves. In order to resist conscious "seeing" and acknowledging and doing something about the ugly truths in ourselves, we project them onto others, we distract ourselves, and in doing so, we disown parts of ourselves and those parts begin their tyranny. When enough of us do this, our world becomes as disordered as we are inside.

    It's through conflicts and suffering that enough emotion can break through, consciously, to alert us of what we are not seeing. Eden shows us that if we see and acknowledge it - whatever the darkness is - we can take it to the Holy Spirit to help us heal and order it properly. If Adam and Eve had done this, rather than allowing themselves to be distracted by what was easier and more attractive in the moment, they would have had the knowledge of good and evil without the suffering, because the evil was with them in the Garden the whole time; they just didn't notice or acknowledge it as such.

    Matthew 18, the Beatitudes, and Old Testament Jacob as a case study, help us with proper healing and ordering: working through pop quizzes, "turning back" to acknowledge and rescue the inner child, setting good boundaries for ourselves and others, and forgiveness for all.

    06 Ep#499 Rescuing the Lost Sheep: Fraternal Correction

    Somehow I suspect you've either recently been in a conflict where you were corrected or have seen a need or opportunity to offer correction to another. If not, perhaps it's just around the corner. How about some guidelines from Jesus about that?



    Because we are God's children, and He warns us sternly against "despising the little ones." After radical detachment, we have to "turn back" to rescue the lost sheep of our inner child, and the lost sheep in our original and church families when they are also our brothers and sisters in Christ.
